Lady Ongar and Florence

Mary Ellen Edwards


Wood engraving by Horace Harral

6 x 4 inches

Illustration for Anthony Trollope’sThe Claverings, The Cornhill Magazine, May 1867, facing p.513.

The final illustration in which Julia and Florence achieve a rapprochement. The image represents the author’s measured words (p.530), and Edwards stresses the idea that Julia no longer regards herself as a rival in love; rather, she shows her as self-contained, taller than Florence, and holding her hands as if she were a mother-figure.
